    This was a “Must-See” when I went to DC years ago. The church has actual maps printed to help you spot him! He’s waaaay up high,-you need binoculars to see him!

    I think Ranger Rick magazine reported on this when it first happened . . . I remember reading the brief interview with the kid who did it.

    Scratch that; the article mentions it was in National Geographic World. I forgot I even *got* that magazine until my memory was jogged by the article.
